Quote: 

well it's lonesome in this old town
everybody puts me down
i'm a face without a name
just walking in the rain
going back to houston, houston, houston
i've got holes in both of my shoes
well i'm a walking case of the blues
saw a dollar yesterday
but the wind blew it away
going back to houston, houston, houston
i haven't eaten in about a week
i'm so hungry when i walk i squeak
nobody calls me friend
it's sad the shape i'm in
going back to houston, houston, houston
i got a girl waiting out for me
well at least she said she'd be
i got a home and a big warm bed
and a feather pillow for my head
going back to houston, houston, houston
